What's New for 2014:

  • Honda makes no changes to the popular CR-V

Introduction
The 2014 Honda CR-V is a compact, 5-passenger crossover SUV sold with a 4-cylinder engine and a choice between front-wheel drive (FWD) and 4-wheel drive (4WD). It competes against the Buick Encore, Chevrolet Equinox, Ford Escape, GMC Terrain, Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, Kia Sportage, Mazda CX-5, Mitsubishi Outlander, Nissan Rogue, Subaru Forester, Subaru Outback, Toyota RAV4, and Volkswagen Tiguan.

Models and Features
Honda sells the 2014 CR-V in LX, EX, and EX-L trim levels. Highlights from the CR-V LX's standard equipment list include air conditioning, power windows, power side mirrors with an expanded-view driver's side mirror, power door locks with remote keyless entry, cruise control, tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, floor mats, and a manual driver's seat-height adjuster. A multi-angle reversing camera is also included, along with Bluetooth connectivity and music streaming capability, hands-free text-messaging capability, and Pandora Internet radio compatibility.

Selecting the EX trim level over the LX equips the crossover SUV with aluminum wheels, dark-tinted rear privacy glass, body-color exterior trim, and fog lights. A power sunroof is also included for this version, along with an upgraded audio system, cargo cover, variable intermittent windshield wipers, and more.

Choose the CR-V EX-L for leather seats, heated front seats, power driver's seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, premium audio system, heated side mirrors, and more.

Options and Packages
Aside from an optional Real-Time 4WD system, optional navigation system, and an optional rear-seat entertainment system, Honda dealers install extra-cost upgrades for the CR-V. Note, however, that the CR-V cannot be equipped with a navigation system and a rear-seat entertainment system at the same time.

Under the Hood
The 2014 CR-V is equipped with a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 185 horsepower. It is paired with a 5-speed automatic transmission that powers the front wheels. Honda includes a standard Eco Assist system that recalibrates the powertrain in order to maximize fuel economy. As an option, CR-V buyers can choose a Real Time 4WD system that automatically transfers power to the SUV's rear wheels when the front wheels slip.

Fuel Economy
According to the EPA, the 2014 CR-V will return between 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway, depending on whether or not the SUV is equipped with FWD or 4WD.

Safety Ratings and Technology
In testing conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Honda CR-V received an overall crash-test rating of 5 stars, the highest possible. As this overview is written, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has not published official crash-test ratings for the 2014 CR-V.

Honda designed the CR-V around its Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) structural standards, which the company says will make the SUV more compatible with a wider variety of vehicles in a collision. In addition to ACE and a baseline package of safety features, Honda installs a standard reversing camera in the 2014 CR-V, and provides drivers with hands-free text-messaging capability.
